The University of Wales Trinity Saint David has appointed Lord Alderdice an Honorary Professor of Practice at the University where he will be continuing his work with the Global Humanity for Peace Institute. UWTSD not only has three major campuses at Lampeter, Carmarthen and Swansea but has extended beyond Wales with campuses in Birmingham and in London, where Lord Alderdice already works – mentoring scholars and practitioners of conflict resolution.
Accepting this academic recognition from the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Medwin Hughes DL, Lord Alderdice, who had previously been awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the university in 2018 (photograph above), said,
“It is a particular honour to be awarded this professorship in 2022 because it is the Bicentenary of the laying of the foundation stone of St David’s College, Lampeter on 12 August 1822. This became the foundation stone of higher education in Wales for starting with St David’s College, Lampeter we have an unbroken and ever-growing line to today’s University of Wales Trinity Saint David, an academic community to which I am honoured to belong and in some small way contribute, especially working with my friend and colleague, Professor Scherto Gill, and the Global Humanity for Peace Institute at UWTSD.”
